Essie - Cashmere Bathrobe (For The Twill Of It Collection, autumn 2013) and China Glaze - Fairy Dust

It has been a while....it was a hectic two weeks: celebrating Sinterklaas at school, at home and with the grandparents. Preparing for X-mas, extra swimming lessons for the little guy, visits to the hospital (nothing earth shatteringly  major...but it needed its time) there just wasn't any time left to blog!

But today I have a new polish for you: Essie's Cashmere Bathrobe. It is a lovely slate gray with some light shimmer in it (I looked at it very, very carefully and I can say that the shimmer seems to be green en pink....in most lights it just looks silver). I had difficulty capturing the shimmer in the pictures...the green and pink proved to be totally illusive....

I used Essie Protein basecoat and Good To Go topcoat and yet it chipped on day one....tiny chips but chips all the same. So I decided to carefully restore the mani and add a layer of sparkle, it's December after all!

The result was Cashmere Bathrobe on steroids or something.....it had the same character but with added pazazz. I wore it for two more days with loads of pleasure :-)
